Best tutor I’ve ever had EVER

J

I worked with Elizabeth at Johnson County Community College a few times.

From what I remember, she was patient, kind, helpful and supportive. She really is good at giving advice on what could be improved.

She is willing to help anyone at a moments notice, no matter what the issue is. She ensures that all the individuals that she works with succeed in their course work.

Very friendly individual.

Theses are the reasons that I think Elizabeth is a trustworthy teacher.

I worked alongside Elizabeth in the same writing center for years, and I was always impressed by her professionalism, friendly demeanor, and satisfaction of her students. Always patient, never demeaning, she was always a joy to watch tutor, and I believe she will bring the same energy to tutoring here. Cannot recommend enough.

Elizabeth and I worked together for about five years in a Community College Writing Center. During that time, I watched her develop from a student tutor who was entirely new to the process into a confident, articulate, and empathetic senior tutor who approached her job with the utmost seriousness and care.

Elizabeth has a wide variety of experiences, both in her tutoring capabilities and her life. Her years of travelling around the world have fostered a love of language and multiculturalism, which is reflected directly in her work with students from all walks of life. Her devotion and patience when working with students is second to none. Elizabeth has experience tutoring a wide array of subjects (from English to Science to Humanities and everything in between), and goes out of her way to make sure that her students understand what a particular course expects of them.

Especially noteworthy is that Elizabeth has a genuine talent for working with ESL/ELL students. Being fluent in both English and French, she has a very direct understanding for and empathetic disposition toward individuals who are navigating the process of learning another language. I've seen her, multiple times, sit patiently with a student and work through issues of translation, context, cultural peculiarities, and grammar until the student walks away with a better understanding of the English language.

I cannot recommend Elizabeth highly enough as tutor, a colleague, and a friend. She is an intensely hard working woman, and a truly dedicated teacher and learner.
